Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Uncle Jack Update

I just talked with Uncle Jack. Yes, he has his cell phone with him and can carry on a conversation pretty well. He is still in ICU for a couple more days, then will be moved to a regular room for 2 or 3 more weeks.

I also talked with his wife Sue, and she said she can see some improvement each day. The surgeons removed part of his esophagus and part of his stomach. Sue said they were pleased that the chemo and radiation treatments apparently had killed all the cancer.

What he has been through is quite serious and it will take several weeks for him to recover, but the good news is it appears that he will.

I told him that folks on the forum had been asking about him, and he said to tell them, "Take 4 ex-lax and call me in the morning." :-) Ornery as ever, so I take that as a good sign.

That is great news Mike! We went through a serious cancer with my oldest daughter earlier this year and she came through it great, but it was pretty rough for her for a while. We know what he and his family are going through. Sounds like Jack is well on his way to recovery, hope all goes well. Keep us posted. Dave
